LittleBigPlanet 2 – New feature revealed

Kotaku has put up a short hands-on article about LittleBigPlanet 2. It mostly covers things that are not really new, but there is one feature we haven’t really heard of before and that is goo. This “material” can apparently be shot with the creatinator (and presumably normal emitters as well) and can be used to create platforms on the go.

The first level I played of LBP2 featured a Sackboy, my character, equipped with a hat that could shoot globs of foam. The hat could be set to shoot any substance in the game, a Sony representative who also had a controller in his hand told me. In this level, though, the hat would shoot goo. The goo would stick and pile. We could make our own platforms with it.
